Applying for a Lithuania Work Visa

To apply for a Lithuania work visa, you must:
  • Obtain the work permit. The Lithuania Labour Exchange issues the work permit. Your employer needs to apply for this permit on your behalf— you need to provide your employer with several documents before they can apply to the Employment Services in Lithuania for a permit. This step may not be required depending on the type of the work visa— your employer and Migration Department will let you know.
  • Locate the closest Lithuanian embassy or consulate. Before you can apply for a temporary residence permit, you need to apply for a work visa at your country’s nearest embassy/consulate.
  • Fill out the application form for a national visa. The form is available online on the Migration Department website and must state the type of visa you are applying for.
  • Collect all required documents. The requirements include documents such as a passport, a photo, valid health insurance, etc.
  • Attend the appointment. Submit the documents when you go to the embassy or consulate.
  • Wait for an answer. Processing times usually take around fourteen days.
